Kat Von D has accomplished so much in the past few years. The famed tattoo artist has certainly kept herself busy with a seemingly endless list of creative endeavors including launching a makeup line with Sephora, designing her own clothing line, creating the annual tattoo and music festival Musink, opening the art gallery Wonderland, releasing two books of her art and tattoo work, and even writing her own music! Kat’s definitely made her mark on the world, all while asserting herself as a force to be reckoned with in the mostly male-dominated world of tattooing. Basically the woman is a total bad-ass!
She has just released her third book, Go Big or Go Home: Taking Risks in Life, Love, and Tattooing. And just like everything else she’s done, it’s pretty epic! Simply not content to be merely a dreamer, Kat has always chased down her passions with abandon. Through drawings, insightful essays, and beautiful photography featuring some of the large-scale tattoo work she's undertaken, she provides an intimate look into her penchant for adventure in every aspect of her life.
Go Big or Go Home: Taking Risks in Life, Love, and Tattooing is now available in book stores and online. Don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for Kat if you want to meet her; she’s now making her way around the country on a book tour!
